I have a flat (nearly inverted) nipple and I breastfed. It wasn't easy. I got a Latch Assist and it helped a lot. How old is your baby? Your milk might not have really come in yet if your baby is only about a week old. You can also try some Mother's Milk Tea and Fenugreek capsules to help boost supply. I would also suggest trying to get in touch with a lactation consultant, at least via telephone.
